Lea Thompson Speaks Up About The Claims of Ellen DeGeneres' Mistreatment of Guests: 'True Story'

Lea Thompson is weighing in on the report that Ellen DeGeneres had been mistreating her guests that came onto her show.

Earlier in the day, Brad Garrett, who had appeared on the talk show six times, tweeted that the mistreatment is “common knowledge”.

“Sorry but it comes from the top ⁦@TheEllenShow Know more than one who were treated horribly by her.⁩ Common knowledge,” Brad posted after Ellen wrote a letter apologizing to her staff about the toxic environment on the set that was exposed during the recent weeks.

After seeing Brad‘s tweet, Lea weighed in on the matter, saying “True story. It is”, referring to the common knowledge among actors and entertainers.

Ellen‘s letter to staff members read as an apology and ensured that change would come.

“To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me,” Ellen stated. “It’s been way too long, but we’re finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.”

After the allegations were made, WarnerMedia launched an investigation into what is happening at the show.
